World First “No Death” Hardcore Ragnaros Kill Confirmed on WoW Season of Mastery

| | , ,

The race to the world first no death Molten Core Clear in WoW Season of Mastery is officially over with the guild named HC Elite doing the unthinkable task of full clearing the buffed version of the SoM MC raid without their characters ever dying since level 1.

This all went down on a Season of Mastery PVE Realm with the Rag kill being clocked in at at 7:54 EST. The group of elite gamers were led by popular streamers Kargoz, Graysfordays, No Hit Jerome amongst others.

There were two deaths total during the Ragnaros kill.

Molten core has been significantly buffed and World Buffs Disabled in SoM.

Kargoz, the founder of Classic Hardcore (Road to Ragnaros) built the hardcore WoW Community and resulting challenge months before Blizzard officially implemented the Soul of Iron buff (showing you have never died) on the live Seasonal server.

It’s been a long road with a lot of deaths along the way and countless griefers used tactics to slow their progress along the way such as summoning infernals on hardcore characters, kiting dragons to major cities and forcing PVE characters to flag for PvP so they can be ganked with mind control items.

According to their official rules, If you die during the leveling process or at 60 you delete your character forever.

Congrats champs, now go take a break from WoW, you earned it!
